Southwest Ohio Chapter

The Southwest Ohio Chapter is honored to serve families who are raising children living with life-threatening illnesses. We do so by providing cost free, fun filled destination events throughout the year that we call Adventures.  We could not provide a timeout from the challenge of life long illness if not for the support of the local community and fundraisers. Thank you to all our valued partners!
